Winter Weather Boost for Chesterfield

Plans to deal with extreme winter weather in Chesterfield have been given a boost by local residents.

Chesterfield Borough Council have taken on 55 local residents who have come forward to help with snow clearance.

Some of the volunteers will also act as Snow Wardens - organising the work in their ward or parish.

Council Leader John Burrows says "It aims to stop problems caused in the past."
